Well my surgery is all set up ACDF at C3-C6. I have to be at the surgery center at 12noon Thursday the 12th. The doctor's office is calling this an outpatient surgery. That concerns me because after my fusion on L5/S1 I ended up with a blood clot in there five days after surgery. I had to have the entire surgery again. I'm afraid if they send me home right away I wouldn't know if it happened again.
I'm also afraid of the recovery. I had good relief from the L5/S1 fusion after a couple weeks so I'm hoping I will get good relief from the ACDF. I'm just so scared that I will end up in worse pain and that would be horrible. Now my grandson is getting sick and my daughter will be the one taking care of me after surgery. So she will have to take care of a sick 7 month old and me. Guess which one will get the most attention, not that I could blame her. SO here's hoping I have easy recovery. Any advice to make after surgery easer I could use it.
Thanks all for being here for support.
